Seller has told me "tough luck". The vehicle has a major problem with the Transmission, (dash lite came on 30 miles from purchase), will not pass smog due to this. The vehicle's registration had also expired 3 weeks prior to purchase- I understand that you may not sell an un-registered vehicle in Calif., it must be current or be carried as a "non-op" vehicle. Is this true also? Can you advise and refer me to the Veh. codes numbers please?
